FedEx Ground Reports Unaudited Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended February 28, 2015

FedEx Ground reported unaudited earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended February 28, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $3.393 million compared with $3.031 million for the same period last year. Operating income was $0.558 million compared with $0.490 million for the same period last year.

Operating income was $1.568 million compared with $1.412 million for the same period last year.

A Federal Court Decides to Move to Pittsburgh in Suit Alleges Fedex Ground Discriminates Against Deaf Employees

A federal court has decided to move to Pittsburgh a suit alleging that FedEx Ground discriminated against deaf employees. U.S. District Judge William Nickerson of the District of Maryland granted the company's request to move the venue because it was more convenient for witnesses. Many of the FedEx employees who developed the policies under scrutiny are in the Pittsburgh area, even some who may no longer work for the company, he wrote in his decision. The EEOC is suing FedEx Ground for ‘discriminating against a large class of deaf and hard-of-hearing package handlers and job applicants,’ a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In its suit filed Oct. 10, it alleges that FedEx Ground failed to provide American Sign Language interpretation during training and orientation, and during various staff and safety meetings. The company also refused to provide modified equipment for deaf and hard-of-hearing package handlers, such as scanners that vibrate and flashing safety lights on moving equipment, the suit contends. The suit claims there were 19 such complaints by deaf or hard-of-hearing workers across FedEx over several years.

FedEx Ground Reports Earnings Results for the Second Quarter Ended November 30, 2014

FedEx Ground reported earnings results for the second quarter ended November 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $3.06 billion, up 8% from last year’s $2.85 billion, operating income of $465 million, up 6% from $439 million a year ago and operating margin of 15.2%, down from 15.4% the previous year. FedEx Ground average daily volume grew 5% in the second quarter, driven by growth in both business-to-business and FedEx Home Delivery services. Revenue per package increased 3% due to rate increases and higher residential surcharges. FedEx SmartPost average daily volume decreased 4% due to the reduction in volume of a major customer. FedEx SmartPost revenue per package increased 7% due to rate increases and improved customer mix, partially offset by higher postage rates. Operating income increased due to higher revenue per package and volume, partially offset by higher network expansion costs, as the company continues to heavily invest in the FedEx Ground and FedEx SmartPost businesses.
